Turning it over...

This picture was a year old last November. I hadn't been to church in a long time. This is a skit about turning the suitcases full of guilt, shame, and what I'll call defects of character over to God. This actor was hesitant to leave her baggage there. She told God she had been holding onto them for so long, she wouldn't know how she could live without her baggage. I could relate. Now, thanks to AA, I know I can give my luggage to my HP. It's safer there than with any airlines I can think of...


If we ask, God will certainly forgive our derelictions. But in no case does He render us white as snow and keep us that way without our cooperation. That is something we are supposed to be willing to work toward ourselves. He asks only that we try as best we know how to make progress in the building of character.

Chasing the high...

There was a time when I had long term, quality sobriety. I had a sudden spiritual awakening. I was sincerely happy. The past several years, I have been trying to recapture the feelings I had during that time. My alcoholic nature wants to have it all back right now!
In order for me to recapture those feelings of the past, I must do the same thing again. It's totally irrational for me to expect to be where I once was. I must realize how lucky I am to have made it back to AA at all. Most who relapse don't make it back. My pride gets in my way at times, and takes me away from this moment in time. It takes me out of today. If I keep doing what I have to do, maybe some day, I'll be there again. My job today is to stay sober and help others. The answer is so simple. Oh, Gwen, thanks for the invite to HNT.
I better read page 417 pf the Big Book. Thanks for another 24...hang in my friends.

I'm trudging...


Hi, I'm still trudging the road toward a spiritual world.  Trudge: To make one's way on foot. To walk wearily. I found it between Truculent and true, in the dictionary...Sometimes It's a happy walk, and sometimes it's a bitch! Ya'll are in my prayers eh? Of course you are! Thanks for another 24 hours!
